This past Sunday, Pastor Josh preached out of John 7:37-39 on the need for us to be thirsty for God.
THIRST IS A SIGN OF BELIEF // JOLIE EGAN
In relationship, desperation is often viewed as a negative thing. "Don't give too much away!" "Don't show you're too interested..." "Desperation is unattractive." We've all heard these well-meant snippets of advice as we've tried to navigate the world of love.
But here's a newsflash: when it comes to the One who has loved us since before the dawn of time and who will love us eternally beyond its end, our desperation for Him is the exact thing He loves the most. He cannot move without our desperation for Him. If we're not thirsty for Him, we need to consider if we are caught in the lie of believing that the world can satisfy us.
We are designed to be desperately in love with Jesus, desperately seeking His presence, desperately convinced that there is always more in Him—more than what the world could ever offer. Let's be a church that is unashamedly desperate and unquenchably thirsty for Jesus. Forget what the world says; desperation is true humility in His eyes.
